Gentle readers, space cats, rock dogs, children of darkness, it is that convention time of year once again.
To whit: Continuum X, Australia’s national Science Fiction convention for 2014.
I will be hanging about for just about the entire event, and I will even try to find my way to the pub in the evenings this year. I will also be involved in three of the programmed events:
with: Jane Routley
A discussion group, rather than a panel, in which Jane and I will talk about Australian superheroes and spitball ideas for making new ones with the audience. I will not be wearing my underpants on the outside but I might have to put on a cape.
At the Crossroads: Music and Genre Fiction
with: Julia S, Narrelle Harris, Alan Baxter
Julia, Narrelle, Alan and I will talk about rock music in genre fiction. General advisory: if you are not used to making the Metal Horns salute \M/ I encourage you to arrive early for the warm up.
It’s All Been Done; Writing in the Age of TV Tropes
with: Darren Sanderson, Jane Routley, Patrick O’Duffy, Kate Cuthbert
Darren, Jane, Patrick, Kate and I will talk about whether it’s possible to come up with original ideas or not anymore. I may have talked about this before, so if you’d like to come along and argue with me, this is your time.
See you there!
